  1. So, someone has to say this .... Ronald Koeman could well be on the market soon. Are we interested, or do we just think he was lucky to have Mane, Pelle etc on his watch? Pelle WOULD come back btw, he has said that on Insta.
  2. Well, I like a bit of Strictly so I thank CBF for confirming one way or another whether Kai is Tommy's son. When the new pros were introduced, I say to the wife "Widdrington from Southampton? I wonder if he's the son of Saints ex Tommy?" Of course, she had no idea who I was on about. So that's Kai. As for AJ Odudu .... scrumptious. The wife looks ascance at me salivating when she's on. Yes, she's young enough to be my daughter, but as she clearly isn't, I can look and admire, surely. But yes, Ms Lancashire Hot Pot, don't talk so much, just smoulder and dance and know that us old boys are
  3. Ok, I take above comments back re choice of manager. Lampard I would be happy with. That comment about developing youth with wise heads around them would work well for us. And I'd be happy for the camera to rest on his missus too. Welcome to Southampton, Frank.
  4. The above pretty much sums up my reading of the situation too. He now 'owns' some good tools but doesn't use them effectively - eg overuse of Redmond, underuse of KWP, poor team selection, baffling substitutions. And I share your concern that we have given Ralph too much power. Can we let him go? On what terms? What would be the effect? I'm also unsure who could replace him. We couldn't attract a top level manager right now. We'd be deciding between an aspiring championship manager or an overseas manager who would like to take his first steps in EPL management. Neither fill me w
  5. He isn't barred from playing for the first team, or is he? We brought him in for reserve team football, but we could play him? At least he is match fit, albeit at a lower level.
  6. He's OUR player this season, and I am excited by him. And if he does well and tells Chelsea he wants to stay with Southampton, that may make a difference. So get excited, give him love.
  7. I'm not defending Redmond, but I recall when he had that two goal salvo against Bournemouth, he said he was very much a confidence player. His confidence is clearly low at present, and having the fans back in the stadium barracking him is making him worse. That the case for his defence m'lud. Having said that, he wouldn't be making my team selection on a weekly basis.
  8. Funnily enough, he is that. But I promised not to talk about it.
  9. Same old Broja, always scoring - for Albania. Winning goal too.
  10. I don't know anything on Sorla, but I take your point on goalkeepers. They tend to improve with age (to a tipping point, obviously) so a mature keeper should be considered. Not the role where you want to buy a kid and hope he comes good for you to sell on.
  11. As we know that JwP WILL play 94 minutes of every match, so any of the others are likely to play. Isn't Seaborne lined up as matey's assistant for the B team? He could play, as he's registered, but hopefully Lyancu will get the shout before him.
  12. I'm inclined to agree. I thought Tino and Small would be the backups/cup gamers this season, but Ralph has favoured Tino over KWP in opening games. Now, I don't mind if he wants to alternate them, either game by game, or run of games, but KWP cannot be sidelined. Similarly Small needs to get a few games this season to bring him on. LB had be resolved, and more than happy with the two guys there. RB didn't need to be changed. We just needed a backup (assuming Valery wasn't going to be that player).
  13. Bernt Leno (Arsenal) also available next summer on contract expiry. I'd probably prefer Sam Johnstone too, but there may be options available.
  14. Chalobah of Watford? Did we not want to make an offer? Ntcham of Celtic went to Swansea on a free! Grimes of Swansea? We let them have Obafemi on almost a giveaway, and we didn't try to get Grimes? Overall, good window, but we didn't grab a last minute deal.
